Locktype: posix vs. flock

I've been experimenting with MailScanner and either sendmail or postfix as the
MTA. I notice that MailScanner uses "flock" locktype with postfix and "posix"
with sendmail. I also saw in the spam.assassin.prefs.conf file that it said
that "flock", while non-NFS-safe, was more efficient.
Should I tell MailScanner to use "flock" instead of "posix" with sendmail since
I don't have any NFS mounted volumes?
I'm running sendmail-8.13.8-2.
